Working Out and Work - H54F

I have had a pretty good week full of working out and work. My two favorite things! I always love posting these weekly recaps, they remind me that my life isn't that boring (well maybe it would be boring if you didn't like your job or like to work out). 
1. This past Saturday, I got up nice and early to tackle a 6 mile run. Although 6 miles doesn't seem like a long run to some people, it was a big achievement for me. I am training for a marathon and didn't let the 28 degree weather be a factor for me. I bundled up and hit the road. I am slightly worried about running in the snow. Anyone have any cold weather running tips for me?
2. I love my job! There is nothing better then seeing a 787 taxi by only a few feet away from you, while drinking a pumpkin spice latte! It really is starting to feel like fall here! Driving around the airport is awesome, maybe it's because I love aviation or maybe because I am a nerd, but I am so happy I get paid to do something I love. 

3. This week I went to the incline on Sunday morning with Mal and then again on Thursday morning! I felt so defeated (and out of shape) on Sunday that I needed to go again on Thursday. I went alone on Thursday and was a bit nervous that I wouldn't be motivated enough to do it alone, but I beat my previous time and didn't feel so out of shape! I am going to try my best to keep this a weekly tradition, in hopes that I will acclimate to the elevation quicker and that it will help with my running. p.s. Mallory and Dan win fit couple of the year. They are both so inspiring and I am happy to call them my friends! 
4. I spent most of time off this weekend (My weekend is Tuesday - Thursday) studying for work. My job has a minimum of 6 weeks on the job training program and I can finally see the end. I am scheduled to get signed off this Monday!! I can't wait, but I am also slightly nervous. 
5. I took a little break yesterday from studying and I went shopping. I may have gone a little bit overboard with the new nail polishes, but you can never have too many....right? Plus, at $4 a bottle I couldn't pass up the great deal. I am loving the way that I store my nail polishes, I got the idea from Pinterest and I have been storing all kinds of things in really cute glass jars! 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  6. Great job getting out there and running those 6 miles! Congrats on reaching the end of your training at work as well. I love how the nail polish looks in the glass jar. That's a really good idea. I think I would need a really big jar though because I have quite the collection!
